Outstanding Undergraduate Researchers Award Program


This award program recognizes undergraduate students in North American universities who show outstanding research potential in an area of computing research.

>> 2010 Winners

Nominations for the 2010 competition are now closed. The results will be announced at http://archive.cra.org in early December 2009. The 2011 awards will be announced in mid-August 2010.

Nominees must attend a university or college located in North America, and must be nominated by two faculty members and recommended by the chair of their home department. No more than two male and two female candidates can be recommended by the same department chair in the same year. 

The award committee looks for demonstrated excellence of computing research ability. The type of department in which the student is majoring and the area of computing in which the student has demonstrated ability are immaterial. What is important is the quality of the research work done by the student. The award committee also considers the studentís academic record and service to the community. Preference is given to students in their senior year (or the equivalent).
 
A cash prize of $1,000 will be awarded to each of two undergraduate students, one female and one male. A small number of other outstanding candidates will be recognized as Runners-Up and Finalists. All nominees whose work is considered to be exemplary are recognized with Honorable Mentions.
 
The two first-prize winners will receive financial assistance to attend a major computing research conference, and CRA will sponsor a departmental reception for them at their home institutions. Their awards will be presented at one of these venues.
 
CRA gratefully acknowledges the support of Microsoft Research and Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) who sponsor the Outstanding Undergraduate Researchers Award Program in alternate years. Microsoft Research was the 2009 sponsor.
